PEUGEOT is launching a revised Expert van range, which will introduce WLTP compliant Euro 6.2 engines ahead of the September implementation date .
Following the success of the trim levels introduced with all-new Partner, Euro 6.2 compliant Expert will be available with four trim levels: S, Professional, GRIP and ASPHALT.
Pricing for the new Expert range starts from £21,320 Basic M.R.R.P. for the Compact S Panel Van and up to £34,035 Basic M.R.R.P. for the ASPHALT Crew Van.
Expert GRIP has been designed for van operators needing to maximise payload, load volume and can carry up to three passengers to locations where surface quality may be variable.
It benefits from a range of equipment designed for such arduous environments including: Moduwork bulkhead with load-through flap, a dual passenger bench seat with fold-up outer seat and fold-down writing table, 20mm raised ground clearance, a 20mm thick sump guard and enhanced traction thanks to Grip Control. GRIP versions will offer payloads of up to 1,400kg and are equipped with 17-inch steel wheels fitted with all-season Mud and Snow tyres.
Expert ASPHALT is aimed at van operators who make longer trips or numerous deliveries both inside and outside of urban areas.
Models benefit from enhanced acoustic and thermal design to enhance comfort and refinement, while a range of driver assistance systems provides class-leading features and help to optimise safety.
Equipment includes Connected 3D Navigation and DAB radio with voice recognition. Park Assist 180° provides a significant manoeuvring aid, including front and rear sensors with blind spot monitoring as well as a rear camera providing a 180° view. These features can take stress off drivers, while also reducing the chance of accidents and vehicle damage.
In addition, standard safety equipment includes:
- Safety Pack: Combining Lane Departure Warning System, Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation, Driver Attention Assist and Smartbeam Headlights.
- Drive Assist Pack: Including Adaptive Cruise Control, Distance Alert System and Active Safety Brake
- Head-up Display
Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance fitted as standard across the 2019 Expert range provides emergency geolocation call and assistance services, as well as in-built hardware for telematics solutions.
The system is triggered automatically in the event of an accident involving the vehicle, immediately sending an appropriate emergency call, while pinpointing the location of the vehicle.
On vehicles fitted with Connected 3D Navigation, the standard Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance system removes the requirement for a tethered Smartphone to provide a data connection. Customers can sign up for a three-year free Connected 3D Navigation subscription which brings live traffic, weather, fuel and parking information.
